Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that police in Milton, Georgia have not uncovered anything incriminating against Bills RB LeSean McCoy during their investigation of an armed robbery and aggravated assault that involved his ex-girlfriend.
According to Schefter, the NFL’s investigation of the incident remains under “active review,” and “it is not anywhere near actionable at this time.”
Despite the ongoing matter, the Bills have stood by McCoy and even elected him as one of their team captains last week for the first time in his Buffalo career.
Schefter says that if the NFL and the Bills were concerned about McCoy and a potential role in this investigation, they would not have allowed McCoy’s selection as a captain to stand.
Meanwhile, Ian Rapoport reports that McCoy is not expected to be charged or suspended, due to a lack of evidence.
McCoy addressed the situation for the first time last week.
“I’ll take care of that stuff,” McCoy said. “But right now, the only thing I can worry about is the Baltimore Ravens and keeping everything the same with that. Just focusing in on this big week for me, Week 1.”
McCoy, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2009. After six years in Philadelphia, McCoy was traded to the Bills, who later signed him to a five-year, $40 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed.
McCoy stands to make base salaries of $6 million and $6.075 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, McCoy appeared in 16 games for the Bills and rushed for 1,138 yards on 287 carries (4 YPC) to go along with 59 receptions for 448 yards receiving and 8 total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 running back out of 57 qualifying players.
